FYI - If you say “beer can” in a British accent, it’s the same as saying “bacon” in a Jamaican accent. You’re welcome


Similarly, if you say rise up lights (with an American accent) it sounds like you’re saying razor blades with a Australian accent.


you need lunch.


Yep you are 🤣


Did you take an edible before you presented too?!

Bacon of hope!

Turned 35 last month and starting my egg freezing cycle in January. I’m single at the moment and just thought I’d be so much further along in society’s standard plan by now but life, career and a terribly unhealthy relationship got in the way. I’m not really even 100% sure I want kids but I’m panicking that if I do eventually it’ll be too late and my 35 year old eggs are probably no good. Kicking myself I didn’t do this at 30 and wishing I was a little more sure of what I want.
